  2. This was an immensely fascinating talk. Noam has the long view from his brillinat career.

    I tried to upload this to Google Vid unsuccessfully, but we should take the time to watch.

    He reminds us:
    Vietnam was far, far worse, yet nobody cared when Kennedy invaded in 62, or when we overthrew Allende on the other 911. We’ve come a long way since then.

    I don’t agree with every iota of what he says all the time, for example he here debunks the biology of human violence, while I think it’s a brain disorder.

    He is the reigning MIT scholar, but one of his anecdotes describes a biology professor who trains his students to question his own authority, to prove him right or wrong.

    A very important point he brings up: See anyone that looks like a ‘leader’ and ‘cringe’ (or run for your life!)

    Noam is an incredibly important mind in all the challenges we presently face.
